I recommend this interview of Wall by Scoop Jackson: http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/10833529/jackson-washington-wizara guardd-john-wall-discusses-game-growth
While large parts of it are kind of boiler-plate, two things really come through:
1. Wall *hated* playing with the knuckleheads. We all know that at some level, but boy, it really comes out here, as diplomatic as he tries to be.
2. Wall also seems to have a low opinion of Kyrie Irving (or at least, I assume that's who he's talking about at the end of the interview). The questions (and initial answers) are about why Wall gets less visibility and fewer props than other point guards. But this was a pretty telling response: " Other guys can go average 30 [PPG], and they'll never make the playoffs, but they'll talk about them way more. I say, "Well, if that's how it's gonna be, then let it be that way." I'd rather win and hopefully get me a championship, and then they'll put me in there."
More generally, it's good to see Wall sounding all the right notes about his goals.
Go Wiz! Beat the Bulls!
